Thank you for a long and very fair reply. Sure I am a little bit confused about your actual role. With so many posts and guides I thought you were part of the dev team, the most open and reasonable one, and thats why i choose to quote you. I see my mistake, and apologize for the confusion. True, but they do that after YEARS OF GOOD PERFORMANCE by some stable version. MS did not discontinue XP until W7 proved to be good and stable. With ùTorrent we now have 4 versions of V3 which look more like Vista! (which in itself is an unmainatinable situation). I am not blaming them to stop SUPPORTING 2.2.1 but to have deliberatly tried to ban it before anything solid was in view yes, too slowly. And they never kil these 3.0, 3.1 etc so they face an endless nightmare with "backporting " corrections as they say (but seldom do..) Anyhow, again, my comments are only meant to try to focus on an improvement path rather than elaborating new feature, add-ons, ùTorrent Plus etc.. What's the target ? Realibility, Maintainability or a few Nickels and Dimes ??
